Conflicts are a part of our world and they manifest in various areas of our lives at different times. A certain degree of conflict can be useful and can bolster creativity. Counter-productive conflict, however, is far more damaging to the corporate environment and can result in employee disengagement and reduced productivity.


This practical session will be run by Mallika Kripalani, Founder of the Conscious Zone:

  • Introduction and understanding of the ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Training) Matrix
  • How to use the ACT Matrix to approach conflicts in another way:
    • by identifying and aligning with the values that are important to us
    • how to resolve conflicts with the right intention
    • how to approach challenging situations with a different perspective


With this as our basis, we can start to uncover how best to handle difficult encounters that may arise.

Passionate about promoting a community based on awareness and positivity, Mallika is the founder of The Conscious Zone (theconsciouszone.org), which brings mindfulness and stress-management solutions into businesses, schools and homes.


As an Acceptance & Commitment (ACT) and Mindfulness Trainer, she works with both individuals and organisations. She runs training sessions for corporate clients, and conducts school and public workshops on ACT, the ProSocial Matrix and mindfulness techniques to reduce stress, boost resilience and commit to action through realistic goal-setting. 


Mallika started her career in the reinsurance industry, where she held many highly demanding roles in sales, marketing and business development. She draws on these years of international corporate experience to help clients identify problems and integrate values-based awareness practices in the workplace and at home, to build greater peace of mind and healthier relationships. 


Mallika has a B.A.(Hons) from the University of Exeter, a B. Pri. Ed from Charles Sturt University and has completed several professional ACT and mindfulness courses.
